Favorite Moments: When Tucker and I (Mackenzie) were planning our wedding our two “must haves” were inviting whoever we wanted and a big dance floor. When COVID hit, we realized that those would be hard to pull off with the social distancing guides. We had planned to have our rehearsal dinner at Iron City, and they had a cancelation on that Saturday so we did a last-minute switch up to a wedding that was just family and wedding party there instead of at Mathews Manor as we had originally planned. It was a blessing in disguise! We had a beautiful rehearsal dinner in Tucker’s family’s backyard. We were still able to dance, and we were surrounded by our most special people. Tucker is notorious for ripping his pants from dancing, by the end of the night, his pants were split in half. We had such a fun wedding party and spent all night dancing. We even ended up on stage in matching cowboy hats leading all of our friends in the song “Friends in Low Places.” The best part of all of the COVID craziness is that we are going to have a one year anniversary party at our original wedding venue. It’s basically like a second wedding!
Favorite Details: My grandmother made our wedding cake. Let’s just say Granny is the real MVP. It was a white chocolate cake with buttercream icing. She spent four days before the wedding making it. She made my parent’s wedding cake and both of my uncles’. We can’t wait to pull that top layer out of the freezer for our one-year anniversary.
What We Are Doing Now: I teach math at Homewood High School. Tucker works for Method Mortgage and coaches football at Hewitt-Trussville. We live in Homewood with our sheepadoodle Teddy.
